In the last half of 2010, Mr Scott spent $102,752 on the entitlement, 16% of which - $17,393 - was spent during the six-week 2010 election campaign period.

He spent only $78,181 on the entitlement during the final six months of 2013; the share spent during the campaign grew to 62% - $49,215 - in the six-week period.

Mr Scott said his constituents deserved to get information about what was happening in parliament, and "in large electorates like mine, it's not possible for them to see their MP every week or two".

Should politicians be held more accountable for their expenses?
